The Testaments: A Novel | Margaret Atwood
post image
Pickpick

Atwood wrote the book exactly as she promised her fans. Praise Be! 💚
Wonderful characters you‘ll love & love to hate it‘s Gilead after all. We get to see the inner workings on how marriage is arranged. History of the aunts, the inner politics of Gilead. What school is like for teen girls. Imagine growing up in Gilead. Check out my full spoiler free review: https://griplitgrl.wordpress.com/2019/09/17/the-testaments-by-margaret-atwood/?p...

Cassie has her summer all figured out she & her BF Troy work at the Mall before they head off to college in N.Y. After starting her job late after mono she shows up to work & finds out the hard way that life doesn‘t always end up as planned.
I really loved the characters! My inner teenage self had great memories of my own friends & myself within them.
A fun & hilarious read with hella good 90's vibes!
Keep a look out for this one in 2020. 👀📖

Each story is unique and different from Christmas elves to child stealing demons. There are 12 short stories in total. I love how Lantgen put together these short stories with great balance the stories transition between dark and light magical fantasy. Each time one story ends you‘ll be looking forward to reading the next one.

The Escape Room | Megan Goldin
post image
Pickpick

A group of Wall Street coworkers participate in an escape room challenge as a team building exercise. This team has quite a few skeletons in their closets. The nepotism, greed, self interest, and layers of secrets that are revealed make this quite a page turning read.

Pruzy Would you say this book is literary or more like a thriller? 4w
GripLitGrl @Pruzy it's under the psychological thriller genre 4w
Pruzy @GripLitGrl Cool, thanks! 4w
ephemeralwaltz Sounds fun! I hadn't heard of any books with escape rooms as settings. 4w
GripLitGrl @ephemeralwaltz it was a good read. I've had fun participating in an escape room. This would be the first book I've read about the concept . 4w

I adored this book! The characters are wonderful. The small town setting a great place to get lost within the pages.
As Honey Howell gets settled back in town & into the family bourbon business the body count rises & the murder mystery plot thickens the suspect pool widens and things really get interesting.

A great read giving us a look at being single again in the city after age 50. Written from Candace‘s POV in short chapters each one is a short story about Candace & her friends Sassy, Kitty, Queenie, Tilda Tia,& Marilyn.
A perfect quick read that I finished in 1 day, it made me laugh, and even cry. On sale Aug 6th My full review:

This is a pulse racing, addictive, must read! Sager grabs a hold of you from the first paragraph where we meet Jules in the hospital panicked, scared, & leading us to what got her there. The chapters go back & forth from current hospital time to what led Jules to answer an ad for an apartment sitter in the exclusive Bartholomew.

Providence: A Novel | Caroline Kepnes
post image
Pickpick

You can tell from the book genre this is not going to like other books written by Kepnes. As a reader I appreciate it when authors dive into other genres, at times it has made me appreciate a genre I may not have picked up if not for a particular author.
At the heart of this story it‘s full of romance, literal heartache, sci-fi & suspense.
